The Down Payment of CHF 3,350 is non-refundable, is additional to the fees and is to be paid for each of the 20 week academic semesters for Certificate, Diploma, Higher Diploma, Bachelor Degree, Postgraduate Diploma, Masters and MBA programmes. The school will, at it’s discretion, charge to this account payments made for such things as: health insurance (which is compulsory in Switzerland); insurance in the school; use of textbooks and eBooks (an iPad mini with eBooks replaces textbooks for all courses) and class materials; registration fee; permit and visa fees (in Switzerland); minor breakages of crockery; contributions to school excursions; and Value Added Tax. The Down Payment does not cover negligent or wilful breakages or loss of school property, which will be charged at replacement cost.
The Down Payment does not include health insurance during work placement in Switzerland, which is required by Swiss law. HTMi reserves the right to collect this from students prior to work placement. Students may apply to HTMi to pay this from work placement wages (approval at the discretion of HTMi).
The standard room rate of CHF2,500 for 20 weeks is for a shared room with wash basin and nearby shared bathroom. HTMi reserves the right to allocate this room type to each student, or students may apply to be upgraded on a “first come, first served” basis and subject to availability.

All courses start on a Monday. Students should plan to arrive one or two days in advance, preferably the Friday, Saturday or the Sunday. Students will arrive either at Zürich Airport or Luzern Main Railway Station. If students inform the school about their date and time of arrival they will be met and transported to the school. If students arrive on the Friday, Saturday or Sunday before the school starts they will be picked up free of charge. If students arrive after the course starts they will be picked up at an extra charge which will be notified to them in advance. On arrival at HTMi, all students will be checked into their rooms and will be allowed to make a short telephone call, free of charge, to confirm to their parents their safe arrival in Switzerland.
